 About 60 per cent pilgrims, who had paid obeisance at the Amarnath cave shrine in south Kashmir Himalayas till Wednesday evening, since the commencement of the annual pilgrimage from July Ist, have travelled from Jammu to Kashmir without any security cover.
According to official records available, here, out of 1,30,500 yatries, who had darshan of the self made Ice-Shivlingam till last evening only 48,627 pilgrims have travelled under security cover in official convoys from Bagwati Nagar Base camp from Jammu to Baltal in the central Kashmir district of Ganderbal and Nunwan Pahalgam base camps.
Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik, his advisors, and leaders of different mainstream political parties have time and again said that due to cooperation of the local people, particularly in the Kashmir valley, Amarnath yatra was being held successfully for more than a century. Even the separatists had welcomed the pilgrimage and said the yatries are guests.
